How to Rebuild the Chevrolet Big-Block

      The Mark IV Chevrolet Big-Block, made from 1965 to 1976, produced legendary performance and is one of the greatest big-blocks of all time. This design was a giant performance leap ahead of the old Chevy wedge big-block. The Mark IV featured canted valves, large intake ports, and an efficient head design for vastly increased air/fuel flow, better combustion, and huge horsepower. With a big-block under the hood, the Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, and other Chevys became some of the most desirable ultra-high-performance cars of all time. How to Rebuild the Big-Block Chevrolet covers the best techniques for rebuilding the renowned 366-, 396-, 402-, 427-, and 454-ci big-block engines.
With exceptional clarity and insightful detail, this book explains engine removal, disassembly, parts inspection, selection of machine work, initial and final assembly, tuning, and break-in.
